Crustless Mini Pumpkin Pies

I'm in love.  Fall is in the air and Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away.  This has me thinking of all things pumpkin.  I came across these fabulous looking Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes on Pinterest.  I've renamed them because to me they are tiny crustless pumpkin pies.  I love these because I'm not a fan of pie crusts!  These are a bit less creamy than real pumpkin pie but not in a bad way.  My kids both loved these.

*Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice.
*In a separate bowl whisk together pumpkin, sugars, eggs, vanilla, and milk.
*Whisk dry into wet until combined.
*Fill each muffin liner with 1/3 cup batter.
*Bake 20 minutes.
*Pies will be puffy when you remove them from the oven and will sink as they cool.  Cool in the tin and then refrigerate before serving.
*Top with whipped cream or Cool Whip.
